I had the honor of photographing with a great team of volunteers for the Shine Event at Flatirons Community Church. A prom for people from across the Denver metro area who have developmental, physical or mental disabilities, along with their caregivers. It was amazing to see these people light up when I pointed my camera at them, They truly Shined! We shot thousands of images and gave free prints to everyone. The printer was buzzing out 5x7s at an astonishing speed and I just kept firing off fun portraits. All the 20+ photographers donated their time along with hundreds of other volunteers to make this event happen. It feels so good to see the effect photography can have on a single person! This was most likely one of the greatest nights I have ever spent photographing.
Here is a recap video from this amazing night!
